Venkaiah Naidu orders review of new uniform of Rajya Sabha marshals amid objection by former Army chief

Rajya Sabha Chairman Venkaiah Naidu on Tuesday asked the Rajya Sabha secretariat to review the new uniform of House marshals, day after the new dress code, resembling those of military, sparked a row. The first day of the winter session of Parliament had a surprise for the Rajya Sabha members after the marshals were seen standing beside the seat of Chairman wearing a new uniform.

The current attire looks more like those worn by military personnel. It includes a deep blue winter uniform and a cap giving the look of a police or military officer. Earlier, the uniform was an Indian attire with a turban.

Former Army chief General Ved Prakash Malik had raised concern. "Copying and wearing of military uniforms by non-military personnel is illegal and a security hazard. I hope VPSecretariat, Rajya Sabha and Rajnath Singh will take early action," Malik had tweeted.

Former DGMO Indian Army Lieutenant General Vinod Bhatia tweeted, "An uncanny resemblance hope not by design."
